We have just returned from a one week all inclusive break at the Alcudia Pins. I travelled with my husband and son who has just turned 2.
We found the hotel to be clean, staff friendly, and the pool facilities were brilliant. Plenty of sunbeds (mainly because there is a strict no-reserve policy, and towels are taken away if no-one is sitting on them!) the food was lovely, and the beach is just simply beautiful.
Downsides for us: were that we found the entertainment a little dull...we have a caravan on a Hoburne site in Torbay, and the effort made with the children, in my opinion is much better, more games, disco every night, that sort of thing. At the Alcudia pins, there didnt really appear to be much of that, no dis-respect to the thomson team, it was just...dull!
The entertainment is based outside, and therfore very noisy at night. We were in C block, nearer to the beach than the stage, but the noise echos around the complex, and goes on until around 11pm. Fine for people with older children who can stay up, but for us with a young toddler, it was just too noisy for him to go to bed before at least 9pm once the childrens entertainment had stopped, and the running along the corridors and door slamming had quietened down!
We had a "1 bed appartment". In reality, this is just an area of the room sectioned off with a sliding door. we chose to all sleep in the bedroom, as the sofa bed was pretty grim, and VERY noisy to get out and put away again. We requested a cot for my son before we arrived, and it was waiting for us in the room. A travel cot WILL NOT fit in the bedroom, so bear that in mind!
We chose to eat at the al fresco restaurant Es Moll most of the time, it was much quiter, and still plenty of choice. Also, its was lovely to sit with a sea view, and there was often a bouncy castle in the evenings set up for the children to play on while you ate...genius!
So overall, we found the hotel to be fantastic for children, especially for slightly older children who dont rely on there sleep so much! We would reccommend it, however, I think, with a few tweaks it could be fantastic...really the room sizes and entertainment let it down.
